Weekly Marvel Review: July 17, 2019 (Week 29)

And thus, the Age of X-Man comes to an end. X-Man’s flawed reality crashes down around him when the various mutants demand that he return them to their rightful universe. But not all of the 31 featured characters were thrilled to go back home. Magneto hangs back to aid X-Man and give world building one more try. Age of X-Man‘s 48 points make it the Top Event Book of the Week, not a hard feat considering it was the only event book to be released. The top overall book belongs to the other big X-Men title, Uncanny X-Men. Marvel reunites their premiere team when Jean Grey, Storm and the other displaced X-Men return to aid Cyclops in his time of need. X-Men earns a review score of 99 points with 29 separate characters.

Carol Danvers has assembled a reliable team of heroes to support her in her own solo book. Captain Marvel’s J-Force – consisting of Jessica Drew, Jen Walters, Jessica Jones and Jennifer Takeda – join together to lift Carol’s spirits after her unjust dismissal from the Air Force. Captain Marvel earns a review score of 29 points tying Marvel’s Spider-Man: City at War’s review score. The Gamerverse title receives its best score in its short run so far due to the assembling of that world’s version of the Sinister Six.
